Fire Force is a Japanese shōnen manga series written and illustrated by Atsushi Ōkubo. It is also is known as En’en no Shōbōtai, literally meaning “Blazing Firefighting Corps”. The first season surfaced on 5th July 2019 and ran for 24 episodes. The series wasn’t able to perform that well in the anime community. And hence, failed to make it to the top. But, all these complaints and hate comments about the first season were thrown aside when Season 2 came in.
Not only did the overall production value got a lot better but so is its execution, its creativity, and even its characterization. The critics were impressed with the second season’s overall setup. Moreover, as every episode goes by, the story gets more detailed with the characters getting more interesting. And, without a doubt, the series is successfully managing to keep its audience hooked up.
With all said, let’s talk about the release date of Season 2 Episode 22. And, make sure to check out the official streaming platform for the series. Also, while you’re at it, go through the recap of Episode 21.
Fire Force Season 2 Episode 16 is all set to release on Saturday, 5 December 2020, at 1:55 AM JST. The Episode is titled “Firecat”. Note that new episodes of this anime come out every Saturday.

Recapturing Fire Force Season 2 Episode 22
Shinra and Arthur continue their battle with Dr. Giovanni who uses his new insect ability to predict their moves. When Shinra reveals that he heard Giovani’s voice in his head, Giovanni explains that it can only happen via an Adolla Link, and Shinra recalls that it happened once with Lieutenant Konro.
Meanwhile, Licht explains to Commander Honda that Evangelist plans to destroy the center of the Tokyo Empire by exploding Infernals which have been strategically arranged within the Nether. He suggests that Maki may have the power to redirect the blast even though they may all be incinerated underground. Maki prepares for the challenge, against the objections of her brother Tagaki Oze who states that as a girl she is too frail.
Ritsu commences the explosions of the Infernals, and Maki and Tagaki collaborate to redirect the flames to the lower levels of the Nether through narrow passageways, neutralizing them. Dr. Giovanni is surprised when the explosion is foiled but escapes by transforming into a myriad of insects even after Arthur severs his head.
The Fire Force survivors return to the surface and Honda acknowledges the effort of Company 8, stating that the Fire Force and military must unite to defeat the Evangelist. Maki happily returns to Company 8, with the grudging acceptance of her brother and father, General Oze.
